'93 chevy k1500 will not move in reverse. truck

You may have to check the valve for the transmission. Each of the gears has valves which sends the fluid to engage the gear. It may need cleaning or is faulty. Normally this happens when you have debris or dirt in your oil.

Have a 92' GMC, XC, K1500, 4X4, 5.7 350 engine with transmission fluid leaking from the torque converter cover. (Has a 4L60/700R4) I thought it might only be needing a new conv or possibly a new front pump...

Unfortunately, you hit the nail on the head, i assume being a 1992 model, that the transmission has not been overhauled or rebuilt in it's almost 20 years of service. If it hasn't you have done very well.
It is normal wear and tear in your case, not being overworked, but just by doing its job. In an automatic transmission there is clutches, not one (like a manual) but several, and they are immersed in the oil (they are called wet clutches, for this reason), now because they are in the oil, they tend to last longer, but as they wear (similar friction material as in a dry clutch) the dust and small particles are absorbed by the oil and it degrades the oil as well. Thats why I always recommend and a firm believer in regular servicing, but if this is the first time you have had a rebuild especially in a 4 x 4, then continue what you have been doing.

95 gmc sierra k1500 4x4 5spd manual noise

the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.

Bad oil leak by the starter on my 1988 chevy k1500 (305)

Could be the oil pan gasket or the rear main oil seal.
Remove the torque convertor cover. ( I am assuming that your truck is an automatic) That's that thin metal cover between the engine and transmission on the bottom side.
Drive the truck around the block to warm up and the oil to start leaking.
With the engine running in neutral, emergency brake on and wheels choked for safety.
Crawl under the truck and see where exactly the leak is. Is it between the flywheel and the engine block --leaking straight down the center of the flywheel --crankshaft rear seal?Or the pan gasket? or even a oil galley plug?
Good Luck.
